I was listening to an interview the other day in which it was mentioned that, while people in the U.S. are encouraged to live healthier lifestyles, the barriers they face to doing so are largely systemic as opposed to personal.
I suppose that is why I’ve been feeling glum lately; I have the sense that there are so many systemic barriers to living a satisfying life as an older single woman that no amount of personal chutzpah can overcome them.
(((HUGS))) I feel like there are so many barriers in world today. You have to live your life exactly the way mainstream wants you to, and anyone who bucks any trend gets so much resistance. 😦
Agreed, although I’m finding more and more people are feeling this same way.
